Thanks to Arianne for taking these ootds and accompanying me at the event!
Last Saturday, I was fortunate to be a part of Table for 1201, a cool dining and architectural event in the city. Table for 1201 is one of the longest public dining experience in the world. There is also a table design competition incorporated within the event. Let me break it down for you. There are 1201 diners grouped to 8 per table; each of them has a captain responsible for table design; everyone wears white; the dining location is only revealed a couple of hours before the event; the food is prepared by renowned Winnipeg chefs Mandel Hitzer & Ben Kramer; wine & beer is quite abundant and basically, everyone has a wonderful time! This year, Table for 1201 was held at the Legislative grounds, encircling the fountain in the south side of the building. I was seated at Table 21 and the table captain was Caleb McGinn and Eric Arnason, who designed a wooden wine dispenser in the shape of the historical Red River. Kudos to them for winning second place! After the delicious dinner, the Winnipeg Art Gallery also hosted an after party for the sea of white-frocked guests. If you get the opportunity to attend Table for 1201 next year, take it! It's seriously one of the most epic experience ever!
